10 Video Game Cameos We Want To See In Wreck-It Ralph 2 | Link
Link

The trouble with Link isn’t his awkwardly short tunic or his infuriating habit of walking into danger every other step, but his lack of vocal cords. No matter how humble, brave or good with a magical sword he is, the fact that he doesn’t really speak hampers his chances of appearing in Wreck-It Ralph 2. Where less iconic characters can get away with a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo – is that you, Paperboy? – Link is such a very big deal that if you were to cast him in the sequel, he’d have to at least squeak a bit. That said, if director Rich Moore can overcome that tricksy conundrum, getting the Phrygian-capped cutie in the bottomless bag would be a huge boon for the sequel – though they’d have be careful not to make him too cartoony, of course.

Thinking of a Glados cameo, perhaps she could run a cake stand? Or maybe even just be running an obstacle course of some kind to hint at her Testing Obsession. More

8 Track and Field
One of the athletes from "Track and Field". Would be funny to see a gamer hitting the buttons fast and hard. Or Hunchback. Gorf! More

Good call on Lemmings. They could just be there in the background the whole time, with no reference made to them, just for people to spot. More

Erm I thought everyone in the film were from Arcade games (Yes sonic has had one) as it was based in a Arcade Hall. This whole list is mostly pointless as its all home video game characters. So unless he moves to a home video system it would not make sense. The cameo`s were funny but not a big part of the film. But I have to say I was shocked there was no mention of Tron in the film at all even though Disney film. More
